Marty the Martian Learns ABC Review by Lisa Barthuly & Family

Ekadoo Publishing Group

Meet Marty the Martian as he helps our little ones learn their ABC's! This cute, sturdy & colorful board book will engage young children with its illustrations, and storylines. This book contains easy to comprehend reading material, and each letter is taught with a series of words beginning with the featured letter, such as:

"N: A newborn duckling that Marty just met had a long nose, a short neck and a funny hat. The whole family was near the nest. A noisy dragonfly was their guest." and "E: Early in the morning, Marty opened his eyes. He saw an elephant with big ears and eight little mice!"

This 24-page storyboard book follows Marty on his mission to learn to read, and introduces the many friendly characters he meets along the way, a fun and imaginative book for our youngest learners!

Look for more books with Marty and his friends in 2006, and stop by Ekadoo's website to see all of their offerings at, tell them The Old Schoolhouse sent you!
